English abstract:
      Background Family intervention is an important part in the treatment of children with autism, but previous studies about effect of parent-mediated family intensive behavioral intervention on language ability in children with ASD were limited. Objective To provide reference for formulating family intervention strategies for children with ASD, our study explored the effect of family intensive behavioral intervention based on Verbal Bahaviors Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP)on the language ability in children with autism. Methods Children aged 2-3 years old who were admitted to the department of children rehabilitation in the Second Affiliated Hospital of Shantou University Medical College from September 2020 to December 2021. All children met the diagnostic criteria for ASD in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (5th Edition) (DSM-5). Our study is a non-randomized controlled trial, and all children were departed into study group (n=24) and control group (n=14). The study group take part in the VB-MAPP based family intensive behavioral intervention, and the control group participated in other special institutions or early education institutions training, the intervention of the two groups both lasted for 6 months. The VB-MAPP milestone assessment was carried out in the two groups, and the “Mand, Tact and Listener Responds” were selected. Results After intervention, the VB-MAPP milestone score, Mand, Tact and Listener Responds scores in the study group were higher than those in the control group (Z=-4.339~-2.195, P<0.05). Multiple linear regression analysis showed that the average weekly family training time in the previous three months had effect on the ability of Listener Responds (β=6.065, t=2.170, 95%CI=0.339~11.791, P<0.05). Conclusion VB-MAPP-based early intensive family behavior intervention has an advantage effect on the language development of ASD children in Mand, Ttact and Listener Responds.
